Description
A Catholic priest sets his sights on sin's frontline: New York City Father D'Arcy Cosgrove honed his special talents during a mission to Africa, where he ministered to locals about the dangers of sex. To Cosgrove, sex is a menace to societies all across the world, with no country more stricken than the United States. And so, to fight his war on impropriety, Cosgrove moves to New York City, a place he believes is rotten with lust. Cosgrove and his lieutenant--a towering African named Great Big--land in the wilds of an impoverished Brooklyn neighborhood, not far from the site of a heinous hate crime. There the two crusaders start their assault on immorality, where their attacks always land below the belt. They're determined to save New York--as long as it doesn't corrupt them first. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jimmy Breslin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
